Latest Beauty Obsessions

A few beauty items that I’m obsessed with for their simplicity.

Stowaway Cosmetics


Mini sized – like a battery, the true size that cosmetics should be before it expires. I discovered Stowaway thanks to my POPSUGAR Must Have Box which is one of my favorite and most anticipated monthly subscription lifestyle boxes I receive. So far I’ve used two of the three in the trio set and love how on trend the colors are. I do think the mini size makes sense – I’m not a makeup artist so I tend to take a long time going through a single tube of lipstick!

The colors are so on trend right now and there aren’t 10 shades of the same pink so can’t go wrong picking the colors, I love them!

Turbie Twist


We included a Turbie Twist in a past Freely box. I had spotted it at an Ulta and thought, “What is that?!” once I had my hands on one, I knew all my girlfriends had to have one for Christmas! It’s a lightweight towel that easily wraps around your wet hair, drying wet hair faster and it’s lighter and cuter on your head than a bath sized towel!

If you want a 4 set for $24.95 (give to your mom, sister or girlfriends?) or a single one for $8.97.

Wet Brush


Throw away all your other brushes, and use this on wet and dry hair. The Wet Brush, $9.99 (see combo or travel) was featured in our first Freely box. I was not sure what the big deal was about a brush at first but after I used it, I can’t go back to any other brush! Great for tender heads (not me), and those with lots of back of the head hair tangles (totally me). I don’t know how this brush does it, but there’s little to no hair breakage as it removes those snags. It’s hands down the best brush, ever.
